Vinclozolin review

In January 1996 the APVMA (formerly the NRA) began a review of vinclozolin because of concerns over its potential to cause adverse reproductive and developmental effects.

In January 1997 the APVMA released the Vinclozolin Review Final Report. In the report the APVMA recommended canceling the registration of all products containing vinclozolin and associated product label approvals, and withdrawing all Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for vinclozolin.
